Does anyone know what I can do to fix the problem below? The video seems to be playing fine in that I have sound and it doesn't stop to buffer but the visual part "scrambles" for lack a better word. This happens with youtube and comedycentral. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have homework assignments to complete that involve my teacher's youtube videos. Thank you!!

Try a different browser. It could be compatibility.

Thanks for responding! I can't get Explorer to work for me right now but I'll give it a try later. What other free browser should I try?
Honestly, I've had so many problems with other browsers not behaving with my university's weird software that I only use Firefox now, which is what they recommend. I'm surprised I still had Explorer.
I don't think it's my uni's software either because everything has been working well all semester and I haven't been logged in since this started up two days ago..

Did you clear your cache files and reinstalled flash? Google Chrome is also a popular browser that you can use as an alternative. You can install as many browsers you could on your PC.

Thank you for your response! :heart:
I haven't reinstalled Flash because I had a problem earlier in the semester with videos not playing at all in any browser. That's part of the reason I dumped Chrome, which wasn't even the problem as I later discovered. I read on a Firefox forum that it was an issue with the latest Flash update(at the time) and that installing an older version would solve the problem. I'm now using 10.3 so I guess I need to update. I'll reinstall Chrome as well - I just forgot about it honestly. :whistle:
I got two more weeks left this semester and then this laptop is finally getting some proper attention. It's full of problems right now!

The FF Version 17 is out. Check the release notes or some fixes and compatibility with old flash as I've read that it requires all plug-ins to be updated or be disabled by default. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/17.0/releasenotes/
